Oil & Gas

Oil and gas are important sources of energy stored in the pore spaces of underground rocks. Oil and gas must be extracted from beneath the surface by various types of equipment such as pumps, separators, shakers and, of course, drills. Due to the very harsh mining environment, it is a test for the mining equipment. Metal plating is an important characteristic that manufacturers of equipment rely on to ensure optimum function, protect against corrosion, and increase tool lifespan. For many years, Alfa Chemistry has provided effective plating solutions that are widely used throughout the oil and gas industry.

Advantages of oil & gas plating processes

Advantages of oil and gas plating processes

The plating process offers many advantages for the oil and gas field. The main advantages are described below.
Corrosion resistance: Protective metal coatings enhance the protection of components in corrosive environments, which is particularly important in drilling applications in the offshore oil and gas industry.
Heat resistance: Some processes in the oil and gas industry can generate high levels of heat. Metal plating can reduce the damage caused by high heat and extend the life of components.
Wear resistance: Protective metal coatings increase the wear resistance of parts and reduce the adverse effects of friction.

Commonly used plating metals in the oil & gas field and their properties

It is important to choose the right metal for plating in different cases. The commonly used plating metals in oil and gas equipment and their properties are described below.
Copper plating: Copper has good metallic plasticity, and its application to the surface of the material reduces the coefficient of friction, thus improving the galling phenomenon of the thread. A common application for selective copper plating in the oil and gas sector is to prevent galling during replenishment and breakout operations.
Nickel plating: Nickel has excellent corrosion resistance and is a popular choice for oil and gas plating applications. A typical example is the selective plating of a nickel solution onto materials used in high-chloride down-hole operations.
